FOUNDING - GROWTH - CHANGE - VISION
COMPANY HISTORY OF ESZETT GMBH & CO. KG
Two engineers, Oliver Schwarz and Olaf Zupke, start the project “High-end visualization of plant engineering” at the beginning of the 2000s. The project idea originated in times that were strongly influenced by changes and new requirements in the technical representation of plants, machines and buildings.
A challenge that is solved efficiently and safely with the help of digital replicas – VR models, so-called mockups.
At Achema 2003 being the trend-setting international meeting point for chemical and process industries, environmental protection and biotechnology,the project “ESZETT” was presented to and discussed with potential customers. The feedback provided a good basis for further development and finally lead to the foundation in October 2003 of eSZett GbR.
Particularly valuable was the support under the program sbm – small business management in Duisburg. The foundation was put on a stable footing with a business plan, valuable contacts and legal, tax and business advice. The first employees were hired in 2004. In addition to the Duisburg headquarters, an office was rented in Cologne.
RESEARCH PROJECTS AND INNOVATIONS
From 2012 to 2014, ESZETT was one of the project partners in ZIM project MarOpTra 3D “Operation and Training Support for Ships and Offshore Plants using 3D Computer Graphics”. Over a period of more than 27 months, the responsible team has dealt intensively with CAD topics in the field of Virtual Reality (VR) and training. The result was a prototype for employee training based on existing planning data.
We successfully presented new ideas for discussion and took part in the startup competition of the city of Dortmund, start2grow. We were honored for our work in the field of VR in 2004 and in 2010 for our software bee.
The goal 2-project “ZukunftsWettbewerb Ruhrgebiet” with the conveyor PTJ in Jülich was successfully implemented by ESZETT in the topic area “Application of VR technology in industrial plant construction”.

CHANGING FOR THE FUTURE
The number of employees increased, the company changed into GmbH & Co. KG in 2008 and the corporate design was more contemporary.
Services to be provided by ESZETT address the issue of multiple use of existing data.
Our most important development is bee, a project management system that grows with the needs of users and experience of developers.
For many years Oliver Schwarz has been active in the soccer sports club, the RSG Verberg / Gartenstadt 99 e.V.. In addition to his personal commitment, ESZETT has been supporting the club and its outstanding youth and integration work by donations in kind for many years and will continue to do so with pleasure in the future.
